My children will insist on growing up and making me feel old. Yesterday saw Sam turn 9.


The day before we’d spent some time at a softplay centre with lots of his friends so his birthday was a much more relaxed affair.  He needed to be cajoled out of bed to open his presents as he was too busy reading Harry Potter for the goodness knows how manyth time.

We picked up his best friend Oscar from the ferry in the morning and came back here where the boys played Sam’s new Xbox game, chatted, made a mess of Sam’s room, got on my nerves with the new ‘sound machine’ (every one needs a great aunt to buy those presents that children love but parents hate).

There was cake.20141115_2 20141115_3Playing in the park.  Sam’s present was a scooter so there was lots of scooting.  Including scooter jousting with pool noodles.

Then it was back to Gosport for birthday tea in KFC.20141115_15 20141115_16 Some nighttime scooting round and round the fountain.
